You can't. The only way to get in is through examinations that are administered through the high school system. No one who hasn't finished school in Greece or Cyprus can try for university.

There are private schools offering paramedical training, but I don't know how many of those are still in business.

You can't be appointed in a public position, but you can have your degree validated and work in a private practice.

Sounds like your family needs to immigrate to Greece ASAP so you can study in highschool there for the medical school plan to work.

Looks like you will have to move to Greece now so you can study in highschool there, if you plan to go to medical school there.

IMO unless you are going to do highschool in Greece, why not get baptized in Turkey under EOs.

You know English excellently. Just think of Greek the same way.

But otherwise, I'm not sure how you think you can do such a hard thing as medical school in Greece if you believe you can't even do plain highschool Greek.

Part of being helpful is knowing when you're not helpful. 
Just grab them by prayer.


Mor has spoken through George... this is the faith of the fathers!

He says he is thinking about going to an Orthodox country for medical school.
I listed all the Orthodox countries and encouraged him optimistically that he could learn the local language, since he does English well. This is the time to try to learn the local language, it's easier when you are young, like highschool.

What is not helpful about what I said?


He says:
Yes you are right.... I think i need make some hard decisions in my life.
What was not helpful about what I said, emphasizing the importance of starting early, going to Greek highschool before diving in over the head?

Isn't it good to be realistic in order to succeed?
